Royal Fantasy Assembly ...got a pack of cards to match?

Postby Jonathan Townsend » September 21st, 2017, 8:41 pm

Hi folks,

First a nod to Lubor Fieldler for the base trick he did using Jumbo cards - video of product ... https://www.martinsmagic.com/allmagic/c ... r-fiedler/

That's a nifty card change trick ... that sparked an interest in the classic Hofzinser card assembly plot ( Power of Faith, McDonalds...)

Is there a pack of cards to match these?

Thanks,

Jon

You can find a pack to match the Royal Fantasy cards HERE.

Why you would want to do so is beyond me, as the back design on these cards is without a doubt the ugliest I have ever seen!

I suggest you find a deck of THESE and make your own gaffed court card.

That's what I did.

Hi Folks,
Back on track - I like the Fiedler card change. The procedure looks like a natural setup for a glide-like action to table the court cards... for an assembly routine. You deal the spot cards from the top of the packet. A nice old card trick done using nice old cards...

Any suggestions for the cards?

Jon,

Must I do all the legwork for you!? :)

The url of the picture of the cards that I suggested, should have led you to HERE. From there you translate the page to English and then click on Paitnik playing cards
(unless you are fluent in German - then you skip the translation and go directly to Paitnik Spielkarten) which will take you HERE, where you can purchase a pack for 4.49 euros.

As of noon today, that will be $5.32 American.

Thanks Brad :) I went and misinterpreted your image as if the cards were out of print .. went to ebay. Enjoy the laugh. :)

Next stop on this ... three packs... or given the shipping costs maybe a half dozen. Guess I'll find out how large a wallet I need shortly...) Any chance for cards with white borders too? (French style huh, learn something new every day)

Thanks Brad - looking at those now - Also just a moment ago via email Piatnik US:
Jon
I am sorry, these cards are not sold in the US. From time to time you will find them on ebay/amazon from individuals that have brought them back from Europe.

Wishing you success on your project

Kind Regards,
